The food was edible, but pretty poor for the price. Fries soggy, lamb with a lot of gristle, etc. The greek salad was decent, but you can get the same anywhere. The live music was good at least!

the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
